Out of Unit Callings Not Showing in Unit MLS

Postby jerimeaux » Sun Mar 01, 2015 9:20 am

We have numerous members that have out of unit callings (out of stake) in YSA wards and stakes and those callings do not show up in our local MLS or LDS Tools. Consequently, the Members Without Callings lists is inaccurate. An onerous patch is to set up custom callings mimicking (to some degree) the out of unit calling, but can't the programmers fix it to reflect the actual calling?

The Out of Unit Callings in LCR correctly shows those serving outside your stake.

I'm surprised that they don't show on that report in LDS Tools, since I believe that LDS Tools gets the members without callings report from LCR. I'm not surprised that the callings don't show on the member themselves since that is only asking for the callings in the stake.

Edit: I checked my stake and found a member with just an out of stake calling and it shows correctly in LCR (both in out of unit callings and the members without callings report), but they show up on the members without callings report in LDS tools.

I suppose it will be a moot point next quarter when they move Callings to the online LCR only. Thanks for your bit of research.
